Local gem

Consistently good food - the tomato mozarella melt is yummy, as is the bagel, cream cheese and lox. A jewel for this area, fresh food, well prepared and serves and outstanding Sunday Brunch.

This place makes a nice baguette, and some of the other food is quite good. However, and this has been consistent over the past say 2 years (including today), service that you can only call rude. Truly rude. Not nice, impatient, lacking in eye-contact, borderline yelling rude. Until that changes I'd stick with the bakery side.

This restaurant has the best food ever. The all time favorite is the village cold plate. It has huge amounts of three different things such as pimento cheese, chicken salad and egg salad. You will love it. Fresh salads that are the best ever.

My friend and I walked to the Village Baker on a Tuesday morning. We'd hoped since they aren't open on Monday that the baked goods would be freshly baked. I ordered a blueberry scone and coffee. The coffee was good. The scone? I'm not sure when it was baked but there was no flavor, not even in the hardened sugar... More

Sunday brunch on a whim today. What a great whim! We will be back, loved the food, service, atmosphere, and did I mention the food? Oh, and the deserts... Personally, I chose a second plate of food over seconds in desert. That doesn't happen very often. #Please open one of these in Anderson. Until then, we will drive.

The home fries are thick cut 2 bite size potatoes that are very tasty. The bacon was thick but a little... More

Daily they offer breakfast and lunch service. For lunch, there's a daily quiche and and large selection of creative sandwich and salad choices. Lastly, there's the bakery and coffee... More

ok…maybe I am bit judgmental…never have I been in such a small town and had such a treat for breakfast. Fresh pastries of all types..and a wonderful sit down breakfast. A huge hit with my daughter who I was visiting at Clemson University!

The food is everything you expect it to be and more. Fresh ingredients done fantastically well. We've been there for the brunch, visited the cafe, and to the bakery. We are always happy with the food and portions. THAT SAID you will be left with a sour taste in your mouth, not by the food but by certain members of... More
